Need another use for jam besides spreading it onto your toast? It’s just delicious in this gin and jam cocktail that’s perfect for the summer.


For the Sugar Syrup:

  1. Dissolve the sugar in water over a low heat. Make a big batch, pop into a sterilised jar and keep in fridge for whenever you make a cocktail.

For the Cocktail:

  1. Place all of the cocktail ingredients into a cocktail shaker with a couple of ice cubes and shake really well.
  2. Half fill cocktail glass/glass of choice with cubed ice.
  3. Take the shaker and pour over the cubed ice.
  4. Top the glass up with a touch of soda water.
  5. Garnish with a sprig of mint, a teaspoon of jam and a couple of raspberries on a cocktail stick.

Chefs Tip

To make a bigger batch, just multiply all of the ingredients by four, and mix together in a jug instead of using a shaker, then pour into glasses over ice.
